Special Notes on Monster and it's TP Moves

Poroggo are BLM type beastmen, and enjoy casting High level -ga spells and Ancient Magic.

Poroggo have several very dangerous TP moves. Water Bomb deals serious damage and the silence is very potent. This move can hurt even very high level tanks.

Frog Song Can charm the player with the most hate who is fighting the Poroggo. The only solution is to sleep the charmed person until it wears off. If a player is soloing a Poroggo and is charmed the monster will depop. The Charm is not effective on a Beastmaster's pet.

Providence is an odd TP move. The move causes no damage, but it allows, while it's in effect, for the Poroggo to cast spells that a normal BLM type monster could not normally have. Haste, Breakga, Graviga, Slowga, and Death, have all been seen.


Obtaining the Spell
Minimum Blue Mage Level Needed To Acquire Spell: Level 82 with Magus Jubbah equipped, 85 without.
Water Bomb is best hunted in Abyssea - La Theine.

This spell can be soloed at level 90 with no issues.

You should have Echo Drops to deal with Water Bomb. Equipping a sleep spell is mandatory for dealing with a charmed friend if you are working non-solo. Head Butt for stun should be set. Have Chaotic Eye in your list for silence, and a dispell to get rid of blaze spikes. Sneak and Invisibility spells or powders to get to camp are needful. A warp item will save a long walk home.

Poroggo Hunting Grounds Camp #1
Name Level Location
PPoroggo Seducteur 80-83?? Abyssea - La Theine


Zone into Abyssea - La Theine, and get your time and Atma/Abyssite Buffs. Take the conflux to #5 or #6 and work your way around to the north side of the red circled camp on the map above. Camp is in the K-10 square. I like to use cannonball to pull the Poroggo to camp. The frog may open with a long cast spell, so back away to your camp and wait for it to come to you. They do not link, so no worries if they are in a group. 

Once the Monster closes with you, stun it, and silence it. Then erase it's blaze spikes (They are annoying!). After that it's a simple matter to feed it TP, and wait for the TP move. Watch for the silence to wear off the mob, and recast it as needed. Keeping stun ready to go can help. If you are solo, being charmed is harmless, but may cause the mob to despawn. Providence is not an issue if silence is on the Poroggo. Be ready to use your Echo Drops when Water Bomb is used. Kill and hope to learn!

Poroggo Hunting Grounds Camp #2
Name Level Location
Poroggo 75-77 Mamook

Zone into Mamook from the Wajaom Woodlands using the entrance at D-12 on the Woodlands map. Head to the small room with a vat Viscous Liquid at G/H-7, this is a safe camp. There will be sight aggro on the way to it, so take precautions. Around the pond to the west you will find eight Poroggo. Using a ranged weapon or spell pull one back to camp. There is sight and sound aggro from other monsters around the lake, so be careful. The frog may open with a long cast spell, so back away to your camp and wait for it to come to you. They have true hearing, but do not link.

Once the Poroggo is at camp silencing it, or stunning -ga and AM is key. If a party member gets charmed, sleep them and the Poroggo immediatly, until the charm wears. Duration is not too long. Beware of Providence, the spells cast fast under it, and Death is a fight ender.


Poroggo Hunting Grounds Camp #3
Name Level Location
Poroggo Gent 56-67? West Sarutabaruta [S]

A camp for Water Bomb exists in West Sarutabaruta [S]. At the locations F-4, F-11, and I-9 there are Toads. They look like normal frogs, and have no hats and staves like Poroggo's.

When the weather is foggy in West Sarutabaruta [S], which can happen between 0:00 and 9:00 game time, Two Poroggo Gents will spawn at each of the camps. No Toads need to be killed to make them pop. They will pop in addition to the Toads that are there as soon as fog happens.

The Toads are level 50-52, and have no special TP moves. BUT they do attack very fast, and they link from a very large range. So it is very easy to end up with a large number of them on you if you are not careful. Once you get more then two or three hitting you, interruptions to spells can become a real issue. They can kill even high level players with sheer numbers. Toads will link to the Gents. So be careful.

Like all Poroggo, the Gents love to cast nasty magic, and have the full range of TP moves, including Frog Song, and can fast cast Death and other unfun special spells. Deal with them as noted in Camp 1 above. The only difference being, that since these Poroggo are much lower level, they are very soft, and hard to feed TP to. If you get charmed while solo, a despawn can happen.
